About Richard and Jackie Smith
Jackie and I grew up in the Pacific Northwest before settling in Lodi, California wine country in 1991. We enjoy Hawaii for the remarkable way the people, views and experiences completely dissolve all stresses for a true relaxing vacation experience.
Richard and Jackie Smith purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Richard and Jackie Smith chose Maalaea
Ma'alaea Kai is an often undetected property in the central valley of Maui on the south coast. The property is maintained immaculately with arguably the nicest lawn on the island. The proximity to the swimming pool, barbeques in addition to being on the first floor which makes the large private lawn like your own backyard. Waking to the sun rising out the beach bedroom window directly over 10,023 foot Mt. Haleakala is one of the highlights of a trip to this property.

A great stay, in a great condo, in a great location!
As a family of four adults we stayed at this property for two weeks in late April. Firstly, this is a very good location on Maui to stay - out of the hubbub of more touristy areas, yet near enough to them to even just go for dinner. (We also found a few good dining spots and the Foodland grocery store etc serving the local population in nearby Wailuku very handy) Secondly, the condo property itself is very well kept with the grounds well manicured and the pool and BBQ area very clean. Unit 110 was also very well liked by us all. This ground floor condo with easy access to the grounds and the pool by just stepping off the lanai, made an already spacious feeling unit even more so.....and the sea turtles were on the rocks entertaining most evenings... just steps across the lawn. The bedrooms having their own full bathrooms each was also a nice feature. The kitchen was very well equipped with cooking implements and the recent updating of the flooring, and the new appliances etc made food prep enjoyable. We all highly recommend this property and look forward to staying again.
Amazing place to stay!!!
We stayed here from Mar 7th - 21st, 2018. We were impressed from the start. Richard was very helpful with all the information that we needed to begin our vacation. The unit was nice and clean and ready for us. The unit had everything we needed. And yes, the pictures on the VRBO site are true. The grounds are very well maintained. The view from the patio is breathtaking, Ocean view all the time. The BBQ's are so clean, it is like you have a brand new grill everyday. The staff is so friendly and everyone is so nice. Yes, I will be back. Had a wonderful vacation. It was our Mom and daughter vacation, and it was wonderful! Mahalo. Angela & Josephine.
Mahalo for your nice words and taking the time to give a review. We enjoy hearing that guests had a nice stay. Hope to hear from you again soon.
Clean, Convenient, Comfortable
This property is on the ground floor with the pool just outside. Being on the ground floor allowed us to come and go from the condo while enjoying the property as an extended living space. Perfect for whale and Turtle watching! Love this place!
Lovely condo! Enjoyed our stay so much! We love watching the whales and turtles from the lanai. The pool is very nice and location is fabulous! Owners are so helpful!
Better Than We Imagined
The condo was amazing!! Everything about it was great. The best thing was the location. It was in a quiet area away from the crowds and centrally located for all the thinks we wanted to do. We could walk to the marina and catch any excursions we wanted. We loved just sitting on the patio and watching the whales jump in the bay. It was better than the whale watching boat we went on. Richard was very flexible to work with and always responded quickly to our questions. It was our first trip to Maui and it was perfect. We hope to return soon.
Mahalo for your review and kind comments. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time in our paradise and looking forward to hearing from you again.

Great Place!!! Paradise
A great place to stay...... Once we kinda figured out the tv & to switch on the dishwasher power, we were pretty set!
The bathroom & bedroom were pretty dark as some of the light bulbs were burnt out & we couldn't find any extras. But all in all things were good. We loved that we could walk right out to the grassy area & the pool was right there!
One little thought, would be to put up or print out a few more instructions in the condo on how to use things or maybe we just missed them because we were so excited to be there. Whatever, it was a wonderful experience & the next time I am back on Maui, I will contact you. I also will be referring your place to others. Perfect for a restful, beautiful place to hang out!
Oh yes.......... nice & clean...... very important to me....
Ma'alaea Kai is located in a quiet resort area just blocks from the Ocean Center/Aquarium and Whale Foundation. The proximity to restaurants, bars, swimming and all water sports make this an excellent choice as a centrally located home base.
